Girl Fire | KStewart Is “Keeping You Up” With Her Shift K3Y Produced Single

Posted by on May 13, 2015

Spotted on Jezebel yesterday, KStewart’s 90’s revival Shift K3Y produced “Keeping You Up” single is worthy of the famed “girl fire” label here at FNT HQ. Featured on Oliver Heldens’s “Last All Night” amongst other collaborations, KStewart steps into the spotlight with her Mariah Carey-esk vocals and catchy writing. This is one of those tunes that you need to listen to while driving through Santa Monica with the top down headed to Bungalow. Let the vibes wash over you.

Pop | Chris Rene – Trouble

Posted by on June 28, 2012

Following his breakout single, that had millions around the world asking “Young homie, what you trippin’ on?”, Chris Rene releases the second single off his debut studio album.  Despite the success the Santa Monica native saw with “Young Homie” after he inked a deal with L.A. Reid and Epic Records, a subdivision of Sony Music, the pressure was still on for the second single.  Naturally, we all questioned whether Rene was more than a garbage-picking-smooth-rhyme-kicking-SoCal phenomenon.  Chris just squashed any signs of doubt with his newest release, “Trouble”, appropriately suited for the season.

Upon first listen, I thought producer Busbee may have pulled a sample from Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s “Over The Rainbow” while it sounds like strums from a ukulele carrying on throughout the song.  Holding true to his dynamic “pop intertwined with the occasional hip-hop verse or beat kick” sound, this song is sure to take off this summer.  What do you think, did Chris make it over the one-hit-wonder speed bump?
